The Duke and Duchess of York said their younger daughter and Mr Brooksbank became engaged while in Nicaragua earlier this month.

Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank have yet to set a date for their wedding, but they will hold the ceremony at St. George's Chapel, which is the same church Markle and Prince Harry will be tying the knot in on May 19.

Sarah has returned to Balmoral in recent years, staying for short breaks with ex-husband Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth II and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Yet, Eugenie and Jack fawned over each other as they spoke of falling in love at first sight and how the relationship felt different since Buckingham Palace announced the news. While talking to host Matt Baker, the bride-to-be revealed how the Queen was one of the very first people to hear about the happy news, and that she was "very happy" for them.

Brooksbank added, "She was incredibly happy and wished us well, which was very fantastic, that she was so happy for us".

Her fiancé, Jack, explained that it's a very rare pink-orange padparadscha sapphire, usually found in Sri Lanka and named after the colour of a lotus blossom.

Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson wrote: 'We love jack and I AM SO EXCITED to have a son, a brother and a best friend.

The princess works in the arts as a director at gallery Hauser and Wirth.
